What Social Responsibility Means to Us
Serving Our Communities
Responsibility to something bigger than ourselves: it’s the very meaning of community. Our firm and our people are striving to make a positive social impact through action.

An engaged and well workforce drives us forward. To strengthen the fabric of our firm, we encourage employees to celebrate what brings them together and what makes them unique.

We’re striving to cultivate a more diverse, inclusive workplace for everyone. All of our people should feel challenged, empowered and excited about building a career at CITI EQUITY
Serving Our Communities
In many ways, 2020 demonstrated just how expansive the concept of community is. From the COVID-19 pandemic to natural disasters and race and gender inequities, the call for service is stronger than ever. In 2019, we launched CITI EQUITY Gives Back, a holistic platform for all volunteerism, gift-matching and grant-giving activities. We want our employees to have more time for community and charitable outreach. That’s why we organize coordinated service opportunities and offer paid time off allowances through our Day of Service program.
